Yes, welcome!

Do join ghc-devs and watch the fun.

There is a learning curve, but as Ara says, everyone is friendly.

Hey Sergey,

I’d honestly head straight for the GHC newcomers guide [0]! Once you’re familiar with all of that just head for Trac and look for the low hanging fruit tasks! Most importantly, don’t forget to ask questions! Nobody here bites!

my name is Sergey and I'm recently joined to this mailing list. I would like to help GHC's community and start contributing to the GHC project. Could someone recommend a few tasks, which seems to be suitable for a beginner?

About myself:

I'm pretty experienced Research Scientist/Software Developer in such areas like discrete optimization and machine learning.

Thanks in advance!
